Hello Niki here, thank you for taking a moment to stop by. Today's card is certainly clean and simple, but it showcases the intricate Doily circle die
in all its beauty.
I started out with a panel of watercolour cardstock, and used 3 distress ink colours to blend together until gradual and seamless. Then took a water Spitzer and sprayed some water over the top, used a paper towel to soak up any excess water.
Now here's a technical bit of magic. I wanted to die cut the doily circle as a whole but I certainly didn't want the negative pieces of the die to detach themselves and find myself piecing together a puzzle for the next hour.
So I used the trick I saw Jennifer McGuire do were you take a drier sheet (normally for laundry purposes) and rub your cutting plate with it.
I don't understand what magic exactly happens but it allows you to have a die cut stay as one complete piece! Perfect!
Next up I took the Doily Cirle Die and used multi matte medium to adhere it to a piece of fun foam to add dimension. Once dry I fussy cut around it to make sure nothing was sticking out.
I adhered the whole die cut piece back into its original spot.
I wanted this card to be a "yay! I support you" card so I die cut the YIPPEE! die
twice from black cardstock, adhered them together for strength then added shimmer and a ton of glossy accents and allowed it to dry.

I took the 'you are the best' sentiment, stamped it onto grey cardstock and popped it into place. Once the YIPPEE was completely dry I adhered it above the sentiment strip.
Finished up with a sprinkling of my favorite sequins and beads and voilà! Complete.
